The castle guards attack Miroku who spins around and hits him in the stomach with his staff. The man falls but others come to take his place in the attack. Sango blocks with Hiraikotsu and then slashes with her hidden switchblade thingy. Spears fly. Sango and Miroku, along with the rest of the villagers, are surrounded by the castle guards. Miroku admits that fighting and trying not to kill the people is rather difficult. Sango agrees that fighting youkai is easier. A man attacks and Sango blocks with her Hiraikotsu. Miroku hits the man in the neck with his staff. They know that at this rate, it's taking too much time. Another man attacks and Miroku hits him in the stomach. From the castle, Kagura watches, amused by the fact that they're still alive and that they're avoiding killing the castle soldiers. She walks back into the room with Akago and Kagome inside. Akago laughs that soon, they will want to kill the guards since they're trying to kill them after all. The malice of the soldiers will transfer to them and they will kill each other. Miroku turns around and twirls his staff, hitting a man in the neck as Sango pushes a man back with her hidden blade. The hearts of people are fragile things sounds Akago's voice in the back. Hatred is borne easily in them. This girl is no exception. He is referring to Kagome, whose eyes have gone solid brown, like Kohaku's.
Inuyasha is standing by a lake, calling out to Kikyo. He doesn't understand. He followed the river like the monk told him to but he couldn't find a trace of Kikyo. He kneels down by the edge of the lake and looks at his reflection. It turns into Kikyo. None of the villagers have seen her either. The reflection of Kikyo turns back into him as he wonders what's going on. Suddenly he smells something. He looks up and sees a dark cloud of youkai.

A baby monk statue is lying on the ground in the grass. It opens its eyes and seems relieved that the youkai have gone away. A fluffy tail appears. A puff of smoke and Shippou is sitting in the grass. He couldn't find Inuyasha and he got separated from Kirara. He takes an acorn out of his pocket and refers to it as his "last trick" Then someone picks him up from behind by his tail. Crying acorns fall out of his pocket as Inuyasha holds him at eye-level. "What are you doing, Shippou?" Shippou yells at Inuyasha for surprising him like that. Something rustles in the grass, scaring the crap out of Shippou. A demon head appears as Shippou screams. It turns out to be full-sized Kirara, carrying the severed head of a demon in her mouth. *it's obvious that time passes* Inuyasha is surprised to hear that Kagome and the others were taken to a castle while he was searching for Kikyou. He then realizes that it could have been a trick. Then he runs off, following the scent of Kagome and the others. Shippou jumps on Kirara, urging her to hurry as well. Inuyasha keeps running, hoping he's not too late.

Sango blocks arrows the castle guards have fired with the Hiraikotsu. Miroku lashes out with his staff as the men prepare another set of arrows. Miroku apologizes to Sango for his inability to use his Kazaana. Sango tells him that she doesn't want to kill people either. The men fire. Sango cuts some arrows in half with her blade and blocks the rest with Hiraikotsu. "We have to save Kagome-chan!" "True...it's not like us to give up!" They both have smiles on their faces. Miroku stops arrows with his staff as more are fired. Inuyasha jumps from rooftop to rooftop of the castle. He sees Miroku and Sango as the leader orders more arrows fired. Inuyasha cuts them with the Tetsusaiga. Miroku and Sango seem surprised to see him. Inuyasha punches several men and then approaches the leader who falls to the ground before Inuyasha. He shakes in fear as Inuyasha punches him on the head. Sango frees the captives and tells them to run. Inuyasha seems surprised that the men he just knocked out are merely human. Then he smells something. Miroku tells him that Kagome is inside the castle and Inuyasha immediately runs inside. He smells Kagura's scent. Miroku and Sango run in after him. Inuyasha runs into a room and stops. He sees the woman Akago was controlling lying dead on the ground, a tickle of blood coming from her mouth. There's also the monk who told Inuyasha about Kikyo, foam surrounding him. It's just as he feared: a trap.

On Kagura's feather are Kagura and Kagome holding Akago, flying away. Kagome's eyes are still solid brown.

They fly into some sort of house on a mountainside. Inside is Kanna. Kagura and Kagome approach her and Kanna holds out something that's glowing black. It's a tainted shikon shard. Akago tells Kagura to place that shard inside of Kagome. She will then be completely under their control. Kagura picks up the shard and walks over to Kagome. She takes hold of Kagome's chin and tilts her face up. "She will share the same fate as Kohaku." Kohaku-kun? Kagome thinks weakly as her eyes widen. She sees Kagura and the corrupt light of the shikon shard and wonders if Kagura is going to put that shard into her. She tries to call out but her lips won't move. She realizes that Akago is holding her soul and that she has to let go of him, but she can't. Akago tells Kagura to wait since Kagome has regained consciousness. Inuyasha, save me! "Even you understand that Inuyasha will not come for you. Inuyasha has chosen Kikyou, not you." Kagome narrows her eyes.

Inuyasha is running through the forest. Dammit! I'm a total idiot! *Flashback to when Kagome told him to go in search of Kikyou* I made the same mistake again... *Flashback to when Kagura pushed Kagome towards Akago and made her take him in her arms* *Flashback to when Naraku killed Kikyou and she falls into the shouki. As she's falling she transforms into Kagome.* I lost Kikyou...Convinced that I was the only one suffering, I went off on my own...Am I now going to lose someone else who is dear to me? Dammit... He yells out for Kagome to wait for him. "Don't you die on me!"

Akago is telling Kagome that when she learned of Kikyou's death, in her heart she was quite happy. But, when she heard that Kikyou was still alive Inuyasha still went to her, thus proving that his heart belongs to Kikyou. Now Kagome bears a grudge against Inuyasha. Kagome loathes Kikyou. "It is okay for you to hate them. It is within your right to hate them." (Is this in any way similar to what Naraku did to Hakushin Shounin-sama? HMMMMMMMM) As Akago talks, Kagome closes her eyes. Kagura approaches Kagome with the shikon shard, and brings it to her forehead. *commercials*

The shard begins to glow as it is brought closer to Kagome. I bear a grudge against Inuyasha. I hate Kikyou. That's right, but... The shard stops glowing and gets pushed away. Akago seems surprised. "You're wrong..." Kagome manages to get out. Akago narrows his eyes. "Inuyasha can't forget about Kikyou." *Flashback to Inuyasha jumping from boulder to boulder in the shouki, yelling for Kikyou* "Even if I can bring myself to accept that, in my mind, the pain is still there. However, bearing a grudge against Inuyasha and being envious of Kikyou are feelings any human would have! But, these feelings aren't to curse them, as you said they are." *Flashback to when Kagome saw Inuyasha hugging Kikyou* "Even before all of this, Inuyasha tried to run away from me when he found out how bad I felt." *Flashback to episode 48 when Kagome came back and asked Inuyasha if she could stay with him* "'If Kikyou didn't exist' ... I have found myself wishing that, and worrying...But...all that means...is that...is that...I love Inuyasha!" The last words Kagome yells out. Akago almost shakes with anger and Inuyasha bursts through the door. Kagome turns around "Inuyasha..." You came...? she throws Akago away and falls backwards, fainting. Inuyasha catches her before she hits the ground. Akago...I guess floats into Kagura's arms. (I say "floats" because I didn't see her reach out to catch him) "So that's why Naraku can't stand her" Kagura says, referring to Kagome. Inuyasha is, in a word, pissed. Sango, Miroku, and Shippou arrive on Kirara. Shippou runs over to Kagome. Kagura is surprised to see that they survived. Akago asks them how many of the castle's soldiers they killed. (duh! NONE) Then Miroku's eyes go wide as he realizes that Akago's skin color resembles the color of all the lumps of flesh at Mount Hakurei. He wonders if Akago is the identity of all of the little snowball creatures Naraku left behind. "Are you the human heart of Naraku?" he asks straight out. (Do I have to say that Akago's kick-ass creepy music plays in the background?) Akago chuckles much like Naraku. He says that there is a possibility that he is the human heart that resided within Naraku. He can see into people's hearts with ease. He can see their weakness and their frailty. He knows how to cause humans suffering, sorrow, and hate. If there was one feeling that he did not inherit from Naraku it would be the pain of longing for Kikyou. The thousands of lumps of flesh that were at Mount Hakurei is where that feeling is. The lumps of flesh (snowball men!) were the heart Naraku cast away. Akago feels neither pain nor sorrow. Inuyasha whips out the Tetsusaiga and Kaze no Kizu's the $#&% out of the place. Akago smirks as the Kaze no Kizu hits the barrier he has just put up. Kagura seems surprised that Akago can erect a barrier. Jeez, he possesses absolutely no childlike innocence whatsoever. Akago looks extremely calm - almost bored. The Kaze no Kizu is being sucked into the barrier. Miroku yells for everyone to run for it. All hell breaks loose. Inuyasha grabs Kagome and the gang runs out of the building which explodes behind them. Out of the building float Kagura, Kanna, and Akago, encased in the barrier. Akago chuckles and tells them that it's not over. Now that Kikyou is gone, she is the only one who can see shikon shards. In just a little while, Kagome's eyes will become theirs and they will complete the shikon no tama. A shikon no tama tainted with hatred. As long as Inuyasha cannot forget about Kikyou, there are plenty of ways to corrupt Kagome. Then they disappear. Kagome, I'm sorry I left you alone. I'll never let you fall into the hands of Naraku again. Never again...shall I let you suffer like Kikyou.

Kanna, Kagura, and Akago are flying in Kagura's feather as Kagura holds Akago in her arms. He seems to be asleep. Kagura looks down and tells him he doesn't look well. "Be quiet. I will sleep for a while." He used up too much energy because Kagome's soul was resistant. Even though he's Akago's kid, he's not omnipotent. They fly off. *End credits*

Kaede's village. Kaede and Inuyasha are standing at Kikyou's grave. Inuyasha is asking her to forgive him. Kaede looks sad but tells Inuyasha that Kikyou was forced to live in this world. While she was here all her soul did was suffer. Inuyasha looks down sadly, saying how he couldn't save Kikyou's soul. She was killed yet again by Naraku. Kaede tells him that Kikyou's soul has disappeared so she won't suffer anymore. She tells Inuyasha not to suffer anymore. Kikyou is gone now. Kaede would have liked to return her bones to her grave...

Miroku is getting water at the stream as Shippou wonders if Kagome is ok. She's been asleep ever since they returned to the village. Sango and Miroku assure him that Inuyasha is with her so it'll be ok.

In Kaede's hut, Inuyasha kneels next to Kagome's bed. She wakes up and smiles realizing that Inuyasha came to save her. She sits up and Inuyasha helps her.

In the woods, Inuyasha apologizes to Kagome for what happened. Kagome assures him that it's fine. "It's not!" He let her fall into danger. Just a little longer and I would've lost Kagome too Kagome looks at him and almost cheerfully tells him that if he ever hears another word of Kikyou being alive he'll go after her again. "I won't go! I won't leave you ever again!" "Liar." "I am not!" "You're the type who would go. How long do you think I've been with you? You absolutely would go. But when you do, I'll be annoyed. You can expect that from me, right?" Then Kagome leans against him and closes her eyes. "Hey, you really are mad." "I am, but..." Inuyasha will never forget about Kikyou. Still, I love him, so there's nothing I can do. She snuggles against him with a smile on her face. Inuyasha rests his cheek against the top of her head and smiles. Thank you, Kagome

(the same scnet he was baffled about earlier) miroku shippo sango and kirara follow right after him. inu enters the room with 2 people dead on the ground, the woman that akago was controlling previously and the monk that told inu that kikyou was survived. inu realizes his fear were correct and this is a trap. inu is angry at himself that he was too late and run in a diffierent direction. back with kagome akago and kagura. they are all riding on kaguras feather. kagome still has that blank look in her eyes and is still embracing akago. kaguras feather enters another building where kanna is waiting. when they all arrive kanna slowly turns around and has a polluted shard in her hand. kagura walks over to her and is curious to why she has it. akago explains that they will put this shard into kagome so that she will be completely under their control. akago tell her that his duty here is done and when this is finished he will go into hiding. kagura asks, so with this shard kagome will become a subordinate of naraku? kagura hold the shard b/t her pointer and thumb. she walks over to kagome lifts up her chin about saying that kagome will suffer the same fate as kohaku. kagomes eyes have more life in them now. she notices the corrupted shard and thinks, is she going to place that shard into me? kagome tries to move but cant. she realizes that akago is holding her soul and is determined to let go of him. just then akago turns to kagura and tells her to wait because kagome has regained conciousness. kagome starts to think, SAVE ME INU YASHA. akago says in cruel taunting tone, even you understand that inu yasha wont come for u. inu yasha has chosen kikyou not u. (sadness fills kagomes eyes) back with inu yasha he is not in the castle anymore and is running through the forest thinking, D@MMIT I AM A TOTAL IDIOT (duuuuuuuuh it took u that long to figure that out oh yeah my mistake ur an idiot :P) *flashback of when kagome told inu it was alright to go search for kikyou after the monk told them the info* *flashback of when akago first fell into kagomes arms and got a hold onto her soul* *flashback of when naraku pierced kikyou and she fell into the miasma but this time as she is falling she turns into kagome who keep thinking, save me inu yasha* inu yasha is mad at himself and thinks, i lost kikyou, covinced i was the only one suffering i went off on my own, am i now going to lose someone else that is dear to me? D@MMIT (inu begins to speak now) WAIT FOR ME UNTIL I GET THERE, DONT U DIE ON ME. back with kagome, akago continues to play with her mind and heart saying, remeber this well kagome, when u learned of kikyous death, in ur heart u were quite happy (kagomes eyes widen as she gasps) to think that such an obstacle of a woman was dead. however upon hearing that kikyou was, after all, still alive, inu yasha went to her again. (several closeups of kagome and akagos face and eyes) whether she is alive or dead inu yashas heart belongs to her. you bear a grudge against inu yasha, you loathe kikyou,it is ok for u to hate them, it is within ur right to hate them. fill ur heart with bitterness once again and allow me to grasp ur soul. kagome then closes her eyes. kagura walks closer to kagome is start to slowly place the shard in her forhead. the shard shines brightly and their is a heart beting sound int he backround. kagome start to think about akagos words, i bear a grudge against inu yasha, i hate kikyou. her face begins to pulse as teh shard comes closer and closer to her head. she starts thinking again, thats true but... kagura continues to place the shard closer and closer but for some reason a barrier was created there and the shard got pushed back. kagura is confused and asks, whats happening, the shard was repelled? (kagura hold the shard up to her face and begins thinking) so there are things that this kid can not do. just then kagome lowers her head and whispers, you're wrong. akago is surprised that she spoke and his implications arent working on her. kagome continues to speak softly, what u r saying is totally wrong, *flashback of inu jumping from boulder to boulder searching for kikyou* inu yasha cant forget about kikyou, even if i can bring myself to accept that in my mind the pain is still there. ( she picks her head up and u can see sweat droplets on either sides of her face. she has a slight angered look in her eyes) however, bearing a grudge against inu yasha adn being evious of kikyou, are feelings that any human would have, (close up of akago looking slighty surprised and confused) but these feelings arent to curse them as u said they are. *flashback from ep 47 when inu chose kikyou and was hugging her beside goshinboku (god tree) and kagome saw the whole thing* even b4 all this, *flashback from ep 48 of kagome in her time crying beside goshinboku* inu yasha tried to run away from me when he found out how bad i felt. *flashback from ep 48 of kagome and inu yasha walking back holding hands* "if kikyou didnt exist" i have found myself wishing that and worrying, (more drops of sweat appear on her face) but..... all that means... is that...(here it comes folks ^_^) (he voice becomes louder with each word now) is that... I LUUUUUUUUUUUUUV INUUUUUUUU YAAAAAAAAASHAAAAAAAAAAAA. akago becomes very angry and glares at her. just then inu yasha burts through the door(i wonder if he heard her ^_^) kagome sees him *slow motion starts* kagome releases akago and falls to teh ground thinking, inu yasha.... you came. *slow motion finished* inu yasha runs over to her screaming her name and catches her in his arms. kagura is holding akago right now. kanna is standing next to them. kagura says in a ticked off tone, now i understand why naraku hates her. kagome is unconcious in inus arms as he demands to know what they did to her. akago explains, i was rummeging throug her soul a bit, since she could not fully give up on kikyou. (inu gasps) a speck of darkness appeared within her heart how unfortunate one more step and her soul would have shattered. inu yasha becomes enraged and yells, B@STARD JUST WHAT ARE U? just then mrioku sango shippo and kirara arrive. shippo jumps off kirara and runs over to kagome asking if she is ok. miroku and sango jump off and are surprised to see kagura and kanna. kagura says in an evil tone, oh u survived? akago asks tehm how many soldiers they killed. sango and miroku look at akago and wonder if he was immobilizing the soldiers. miroku yells, I DONT KILL WITHOUT CAUSE. just then miroku comes to a horrifying realization. he looks at akagos eerie skin tone and recognizes it as the same tone of teh lumps of flesh in the mountain. miroku demands to know if akago is the human heart of naraku. akago asks him why he says that. miroku has an angered look on his face as he says, the reason naraku hid himself in hakureizan was not only to create a stronger body, but also to cast away his human heart. naraku said that he had severed his human heart, that longed for kikyou, in order to slay her. of course inu has his head down which means his bangs gotta block his eyes again as he says softly, this kid has a heart that longs for kikyou? (he starts yelling) THERE'S NO WAY. THE FILTHY WAY IN WHICH HE TOYS WITH PEOPLES HEARTS. akago laughs and says that there is a possibility and he is teh human heart naraku possessed. akago explains i can see into peoples heart with much ease, i can also see their weaknesses and frailty, how can i cause human to suffer sorrow or hate? (akago smiles evily) i can see taht very easily if there was one soltiary feeling i didnt inherit from naraku it would be, (narakus image,his old body, appears of akagos) the pain of longing for kikyou. (miroku sango and inu yasha are all glaring at him) where do uu think that is? the thousands of lumps of flesh u saw at hakureizan, thats where it is. (miroku ponders his words.)that is why i feel no sorrow or pain. inu gently places kagome down on te floor and slowly stands up sans says, so in other words ur a monster born form narakus heart that is twisted even further. IF THAT IS ALL I AM DONE TALKING PREPARE TO DIE. inu quickly takes out his sword and unleashes a wound of wind blast toward kagura kanna and akago. akago smiles and a barrier appears. wound of wind crashes into teh barrier and teh energy is set upward around it. kagura is impressed to see that akago has that ability and think that he has no childlike innocence at all. just then wound of wind is getting sucked into the barrier and the energy forms into a large orb. everyone body runs to escape just as teh energy is unleashed. inu yasha quickly grabs kagome and they all jump outside just as the energy explodes and escpae unscathed. shippo starts screaming again. miroku, shippo and sango some how manage to land ontop of kirara. inu yasha lands on the ground with kagome in his arms. inu is pissed that that kid was able to turn back wound of wind. the entire building is detroyed and akago kagura and kanna rise into the sky still inside teh barrier. akago tells them that this isnt over yet. inu yasha steps forward,tiny bits and pieces of the building continue to fall (like wood shaving rain :P). inu yasha has become enraged again and says, SHUT UP, the next time u try to do something like that to kagome again.... akago just laughs at how pathetic he is and says that now that kikyou is gone kagome is the only one who can see the shards. (sango shippo and miroku eyes widen as they realize this) akago smiles evily again and says, just a little bit longer, when kagomes eyes become ours, we will complete the jewel, (image of teh jewel swirling with darkness inside) and teh shikon jewel will be tainted with hatred. inu repsponds, YOU IDIOT DO U REALLY THINK THAT KAGOME WILL WORK FOR NARAKU? akago still has that wicked smile on his face as he explains that there are thousands of way to corrupt kagome as long as inu cant never forget about kikyou. inu yasha grits his teeth and akago kagura and kanna soar off into the sky in teh barrier. inu turns to kagome in his arms and gazes at her with a saddened guilty look in his eyes. he promises never to let her fall into the hands of naraku again and that he will never let her suffer like kikyou (close up inu) kagura kanna and akago are on kaguras feather right now. kagura looks down at akago and asks him whats wrong because he looks unwell. akago orders her to be quiet and let him sleep for a while. he begins to think, kagomes was more resistant than i expceted, (kagomes image appears over akagos) i used up too much energy. kagura wonders if he exausted all his energy on kagome adn even if he is narakus kid (man naraku sounds like some slut that gets pregnant all teh time O_o) he is no omnipotent. akago continues to sleep as they all soar off into teh distance. (end credits ^_^ ) u can here dogs barking and birds tweeting in teh distance. we see inu yasha and kaede mourning besides kikyous grave. (for some reason the animstion on this part is crisper, clearer and more colorful.) inu says sadly, forgive me kaede. kaede tells him to say no more and says that kikyou was forced into this world even since then she has done nothing but suffer. (image of kikyou walking with her soul snatchers) inu yasha looks really depressed. he wishes taht he couldve saved her soul and not have naraku kill her again. kaede looks up into the sky and says that kikyous soul has disappeared so she wont suffer anymore. inu yasha says, BUT. kaede interrputs him, she looks over her shoulder,smiles and tells him to suffer no more. she then wishes that she couldve returned kikyous remains to her grave. sango and shippo are standing beside the river while miroku is kneeling down beside it filling a conister full of water. shippo is concerned about kagome since she has been asleep ever since they arrived at this village. miroku tells him that inu yasha is with her. sango bends frontward slightly and tells shippo that kagome will be fine. outside rays of light shine down. inside a building inu yasha is at kagomes side while she sleeps. she begins to stir and slowly opens her eyes. inu says, kagome you awake? kagoem speaks softly and smiles as she says, i see. inu yasha you came :D kagoem begins to raise herself to get out of the covers. inu holds her and tells her not to overdo it. (inu/kag moment ^_^) outside by next to teh trees and nearby the river with the sun is beaming through the trees leaves inu and kagome are there. inu yasha apologizes for what happened. kagome is sitting down with her knees up and her arms around them. she is looking down as she says its ok. inu yasha abruptly responds, IT IS NOT!!! i wont let u fall into danger. just then sweat appears on his face as he realizes he would have lost kagome as well. kagome turns to him , smiles and says but, if u ever here even a little hint that kikyou is still alive u will go on and search for her again. inu yasha abruptyly responds, I WILL NOT, I WONT LEAVE U EVER AGAIN (liar *rolls eyes* ) u can see a bit of anger in kagomes face as she says in a ticked off tone, liar (see she agrees with me ^_^) (more sweat appears on inus face as he says, I WILL NOT) just then kagome gets up all in his face and says even more pissed off, you' re the type taht would go, HOW LONG DO U THINKI HAVE BEEN WITH U? (inus becomes nervous adn kagome pushes her face even more into inus face pushing him back) YOU ABSOLOTELY WOULD GO. (kagome backs off adn she has more of an annoyed tone now) but when u do i will be annoyed you can expect that from me right? inu yasha looks deeply into her eyes and says her name. just then kagome snuggles closer to him. inu sysa, you're really mad (DUH) kagome responds still in that ticked off tone, i am but... (inus is slightly confused and kagome give out a long sigh and starts thinking) inu yasha will never forget about kikyou, (kagome closes her eyes, smiles and snuggles more with him) still, i luv him so there is nothing i can do (awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwe) inu yasha looks at her surprised for a second. then he smiles and thinks, thank you.... kagome (awwwwwwe) ^_^

Inuyasha is told by Shippo about Kagome, Miroku, and Sango being in trouble as he realizes that the monk was just a ploy by Okago and Kagura to lure away Inuyasha. Inuyasha later arrives to save Sango and Miroku from the attacking guards, but Kagome, Okago, and Kagura are gone. The three are flying to a remote cabin occupied by Kanna. With a corrupted Shikon shard, Kanna says that once it's inserted into Kagome's forehead, then she will be completely under Naraku's control. As Kagura is about to insert the shard into Kagome's forehead, Kagome snaps out of Okago's control. Okago tries to get Kagome to submit into her hate for Inuyasha and Kikyo's relationship. When Kagura attempts to insert the shard a second time, Kagome resists the attempt. Kagome screams out that Inuyasha can never forget about Kikyo and that jealousy is a natural human emotion. She also shouts out that she loves Inuyasha a short time before Inuyasha shows up and Kagome passes out from exhausting her energy to resist Okago's control. Miroku asks Okago if he is Naraku's discarded heart. Okago says that he might have been Naraku's discarded heart, but he has no emotions of pain or suffering at all. He has the power to look into people's hearts and search for their dark thoughts. As Inuyasha tries to attack Okago, he creates a barrier which deflects Inuyasha's attack back at him. The Inuyasha gumi avoid the attack, but Kagura, Kanna, and Okago fly off. Apparently, Okago exhausted a lot of energy trying to break Kagome's heart and has decided to sleep. Later, Kaede has created a new grave for Kikyo and wishes for Inuyasha to finally accept Kikyo's loss. Inuyasha then goes to see Kagome who has just woken up. Both go outside to a tree as Inuyasha apologizes to Kagome for leaving her and promises never to search for Kikyo again. Kagome says that she knows that Inuyasha is lying and wouldn't help searching for Kikyo if he heard any news about her. At first, Inuyasha argues about what Kagome said to him, but accepts it as Kagome falls asleep alongside him.

Miroku and Sango fight for their lives in the castle courtyard while inside the castle, Naraku's evil spawn enjoys the spectacle which forces Miroku and Sango to kill or be killed. Inu-Yasha's search for Kikyo proves futile: the priest lied -- he's found nothing. Shippo, meanwhile, is in a panic. Separated from Kirara, Shippo is lost, alone and scared. The youngster prepares to use 'acorn magic' to find his friends when he is rudely yanked upwards by his tail.

His 'assailant' is none other than Inu-Yasha. Shippo tells Inu-Yasha about the abduction and the crisis at the castle and they race to the rescue. Inu-Yasha arrives in time to help Miroku and Sango subdue the bloodthirsty samurai and Miroku informs Inu-Yasha about Kagome's capture, Kagura, and Naraku's plot. Inu-Yasha thunders into the castle to save Kagome but only finds the bodies of the noblewoman and the priest. Kagome has vanished. Inu-Yasha sets out in pursuit, cursing himself for abandoning Kagome to such danger.

Meanwhile, Kagura has taken Kagome and the infant to Naraku's latest hideout where Kanna meets them. Kanna has prepared a polluted Shikon jewel shard to insert into Kagome and, once the jewel is in place, Kagome will become another helpless minion of Naraku. But Kagome resists, yearning for Inu-Yasha, which gives the baby another chance to attack the weak spot in Kagome's spirit. He reminds Kagome how happy she was when she thought Kikyo was dead, and how miserable she was when learning her rival might still be alive. He tells Kagome she hates Kikyo and resents Inu-Yasha for his devotion to Kikyo.

Confident Kagome has surrendered to the baby's spell; Kagura tries to insert the jewel again, but Kagome remains defiant. Struggling to speak Kagome admits she's unhappy about Inu-Yasha's commitment to Kikyo, but she doesn't hate them for their relationship. Overwhelmed by emotion, Kagome confesses her love for Inu-Yasha and breaks the spell just as Inu-Yasha breaks through the hideout wall. Exhausted and weak, Kagome faints, falling into Inu-Yasha arms. Furious, Inu-Yasha demands an explanation.

The evil baby reveals the plot and Inu-Yasha is anguished to learn his loyalty to Kikyo was involved in Kagome's abduction and the cause of her suffering. Miroku, Sango and Shippo also arrive at the hideout. Shocked to see the baby, Miroku asks the baby if he's related to the lumps of flesh at Mt. Hakurei. Is he the vessel in which Naraku has hidden his human heart? But the baby tells Miroku the 'heart' is hidden elsewhere. Frustrated and angry, Inu-Yasha attacks the demonic trio with the Wind Scar, but the infant creates a barrier shielding himself and his 'sisters' and reflects the blast. The hideout is demolished in the explosive backlash.

Everyone escapes, but as parting insult, the baby warns Inu-Yasha that Kagome will be vulnerable as long as he remains emotionally involved with Kikyo. Holding Kagome close, Inu-Yasha vows never to put her in danger again. The group returns to Kaede's village to recuperate. At Kikyo's new grave, Kaede and Inu-Yasha mourn the miko. Kaede reminisces that both Kikyo's lives were filled with suffering, but now she suffers no more ... and neither should Inu-Yasha. Later, when Kagome regains consciousness, she wakes to a very attentive Inu-Yasha by her side. As she recovers, Kagome and Inu-Yasha spend time together.

Inu-Yasha apologizes to Kagome for running off to Kikyo, promising he'll never do it again. Kagome forgives him, but calls him a liar, and declares he’ll never change when it comes to his feelings for Kikyo. Kagome admits she's angry about the situation yet she rests her head against Inu-Yasha’s shoulder with a little smile. Gazing at Kagome, a tender smile crosses Inu-Yasha's face and he holds her close. For the moment, the couple enjoys a little peace.
